a note of caution. the same spirit of cooperation and focus that has gotten us to this point with one will be an overwhelming vote i hope is unanimous. we need to keep going so that this isn't a casualty of the back and forth process in the house and senate. the senate played a large role in giving it in the first place. we need to make sure that it is not caught up in the larger dramas that occur around here that we can keep our eye on the ball and fix it. and i do want to say just one brief word about the pay for. it is illusory because it would cost far more than we would ever collect but we have to deal with the rules as they are. there are two proposals. one would tighten eligibility for the health care reform. the other would take away some unnecessary tax benefits to large oil companies that long ago ceased to have any impact on oil exploration or reducing price. but while i actually think the pay for from our side of the aisle dealing with the oil tax adjustment is superior, i think it is a practical matter. we are going to have to do both of these in the months ahead if we ar

agencies they may look and go, oh, this cloud is outside the u.s. perhaps i don't want to use it for one of my applications, but i can use it for another one. different agencies and even within an agency you have different needs. so to answer the question, for the cloud today i don't think that you're going to see any classifieded information because that's not included in the profile, and it might be a long time before that's coming. you won't see high-risk systems, systems that could endanger an agency if compromised. but there's a lot of low-risk and moderate-risk systems today that can be moved to the cloud. an organization that is involved in cybersecurity or information that's involved in federal government planning, they may decide to either keep it in house or use it in a cloud within the u.s. whereas an organization or a federal agency that's supporting workers all over the globe may want to use a cloud that's all over the globe recognizing they're making a choice, and they can see the risks they're documents. so i think we'll see low and moderate-risk operations moving. >> host
across the u.s. this week, we will look at other perspectives on the issue of lightsquared. now joining us is representative paul broun. he is chairman of the science- space technology subcommittee. you recently held a hearing around lightsquared. what was that hearing about and what did you learn? guest: we have been trying to get information from lightsquared, because the information we have been able to ascertain thus far is that this ground-based broadband network that lightsquared wants to put in place is being fast track through the fcc. and this administration is pushing the fcc to approve ishtsquared's spectrum which adjacent to the gps spectrum. everything that we hear from all lightsquared is that this spectrum, if it is ground-based, is going to interfere with everybody's gps in their cars and interfere with the highly that the gpeseses science and the military community uses. so the high precision gps is probably going to be interviewed byk b-- interfered with lightsquared going ahead. the spectrum was designed for low intensity. it was designed to be a signal broadcast from
arrested in connection with the plot. one of them a u.s. citizen. appeared in a federal courthouse today. let's go out front. i'm erin burnett. out front a major terror plot on u.s. soil foiled. a senior administration official tells me this was international murder for hire. here's what we've been told. two men charged in an alleged plot to assassinate the saudi arabian ambassador to the united states. one is a naturalized u.s. citizen in custody and identified as 56-year-old mondaysor ar bab si ar. he appeared in a courthouse this afternoon. he did not enter a plea. according to the complaint that we read, he planned for someone to kill the saudi arabian ambassador at one of his favorite restaurants in washington, d.c. he told an informant that mass casualties didn't matter, saying, "if the hundred go with him, expletive, them." the plot itself is a work of intrigue. it began this spring when he met in mexico with a d.e.a. informant posing as a member of a violent drug cartel. over the next few months, he got the informant to agree to assassinate the ambassador for a fee o$1.5 million.

about gp growth. i think it is quite difficult to compare iranian gdp growth with u.s. gdp growth. the iranian economy is about $800 billion in g8. the u.s. is $14.60 trillion. iran is about 5% size of the united states. it is heavily dependent on the oil sector. when oil prices increase as they have in the last year or so, that has a disproportionate effect on the gdp growth in iran. >> let me correct you -- already in gdp was $338 billion in 2008 and $357 billion in 2010. it is about a 5.5% growth over that time. >> the imf projects gdp growth not just for iran and the u.s. but for other countries in the middle east who are oil producers -- looking at just the countries in the middle east that are oil producers, iran is the lowest of all those countries in projected gdp growth. its projected gdp growth by the imf is less than half of the average projected gdp growth of other middle eastern oil exporting countries. i think that is the comparison, iran verses other middle eastern countries that are dependent on the x or taken of oil for their gdp -- on the exportation of oil for t
treasury will pursue investigations using the tools and how you verify the banks have voluntarily withdrawn from iran and do not reverse course. >> thank you, mr. chairman. let me begin by describing the effort that we have been undertaken and how that has resulted in what we have seen is a dramatic reduction in iran's access to the international financial system. dating back before fasada the treasury department was active in going out to the international financial community, the private sector, as well as government officials around the world, and explaining the case for why they should voluntarily withdraw from the iranian financial sector, in particular the designated iranian banks, banks sanctioned for involvement in iran's proliferation activities and its support for terrorism. we were making good progress in isolating iran in limiting the number of banks around the world that were willing to do business, particularly with designated iranian banks. the number of banks, turkly in europe, that will willing to continue to do business with iran were reducing iran's ability to a

that did so much for this country, let us draw strength from those earlier struggles. first and foremost, let us remember that change has never been quick. change has never been simple or with without controversy. change depends on persistenceç. change requires determination. it took a full decade before the moral guidance of brown vs. board of education was translated ininto enforcement measures of the civil rights act and the voting rights act. those 10 long years did not lead dr. king to give up. he kept pushing, speaking, marching, until change finally came.
